TRENTON, New Jersey — Thousands of homes and businesses were without power after severe thunderstorms roared through New Jersey.
The storms contained heavy rains and strong winds, which damaged trees and downed power lines in many areas on Saturday afternoon.
Jersey Central Power and Light reported that 35,405 customers were without electricity early Saturday night, while about 1,900 PSE&G customers had no service. Scattered outages were reported in southern Jersey, where the storms were not as severe.
Crews were working to restore power to all customers by midnight Saturday.
